From Digital Marketing to Life Coaching – My spiritual awakening journey

Paola had a successful corporate career in Digital Marketing until the day she felt “absolutely crushed”. She suddenly realised that that kind of life simply did not resonate with her anymore.

Christelle Pillot talks her career change from Engineering to Life Coaching

For me, what is also incredibly important, and it is also one of my biggest motivations is to set a good example for my children. I don’t want them to stay in a career that doesn’t suit them, just because it is well paid. I wanted to teach them to follow their dreams and to live a good life, full of meaning and accomplishment. The only way to teach them that is to do it myself.

How I changed my career from Dancer to Dance Teacher and kept my business going during COVID19

The dance luminary Jurgen Schneider, our master teacher and also a Ballet Master at American Ballet Theatre, told me I was a born teacher.
